I Do All and Brother Just Visits Does Nothing Else
Mom lives in an independent living complex. Has a part time aide who is very kind, but needs much guidance. No long term care insurance.
I take care of medications, script renewals, finding Doctors. Transporting mom to all Dr appointments, buy clothes and other needs. Also take calls at all hours of day and night, food shop,monitor her oxygen and breathing treatments,arrange for help when no one can be there.
I see her at least three times a week either for Dr appointments X-rays, cat scans etc or just for company.
ALL I GET IS CRITICISM!!
My younger brother who is retired and owns a house near her does NOTHING. She thinks he is
The most wonderful human being. All he does is visit her for an hour. He is retired !!!
I got her an eldercare lawyer, I got her extra benefits, I opened her bank accounts. I deal with medicare and secondary insurance issues ..........get the picture.
I want to walk away from everything and let my brother take over but I feel very guilty. My mom and I were so close.
